Artist's Description

Part of my new “Stone Angels” series.

A real change of subject for me.

Inspired by the Dr Who episode called “Blink”, I went looking for stone angels.

People may think a cemetery is a macabre place for a photo-shoot, but I saw it as a way to explore the art associated with rituals.

This one is at Kew Cemetery Vic.

Most of the statues are androgynous-feminine. Here is a boy-angel, engrossed in his book. I wonder what the book was – Latin Grammar? Boy’s Own?

This is my favourite shot from the photo-shoot.

It’s one of four surrounding a statue of a headmaster or something similar (I didn’t want to look at the words – it would be too easy to get sucked in to all the sad stories.)

Nikon D70, 300mm lens
